A charming reminder that even the worst things don't last forever. 

"Unlike many picture books that seek to comfort young audiences by assuring them that their apprehensions are unfounded, Donnini’s quiet prose shows readers that worry is a feeling as valid as any other . . . the world is an increasingly worrisome place, and books like this one, that offer simple acknowledgement of this fact, are just as essential as those that offer elaborate escape. Timely assurance of the impermanence of life’s difficulties." —Kirkus Reviews

It's time for little Crue's first big adventure with his Great Uncle Ollie, but he can't help but worry: What if the boat breaks? Or an octopus swallows them in one gulp? Or a family of whales takes over the boat? It seems the worries will follow him around forever until Great Uncle Ollie squeezes his hand and shares his secret mantra: Keep calm, it will pass. Through storms . . . Keep calm, it will pass . . . past sharks . . . Keep calm, it will pass . . . even through a pirate attack . . . Keep calm, it will pass . . . Great Uncle Ollie's mantra keeps Crue afloat—until it's time for a solo journey of his own.

For kids who worry or stress over life's troubles, This Will Pass is a welcome lesson in mindful patience.
